Default Greatest pass of all time?

This pass is hundreds of years ahead of it's time. I'm not sure what it's purpose really was, as the pass is far beyond my level of understanding. Carlos Arroyo is a visionary.


Mr. Arroyo makes the pass at exactly 2m and 15s into the clip.

I still believe Isiah Thomas' outlet pass is the greatest pass of all time (off the rebound I believe). edit-- nope was wrong. It was in the all star game with jordan and the bounce pass



I don't know what Arroyo was doing there beyond showboating.

not sure if i'm alone, but i've always found Arroyo to be an annoying kind of player.

And as for the best passes of all time, i've got to give the nod to Bargnani and a pass that he made sometime ago. You guys remember? It was like a one touch, no look moment of brilliance to Bosh in the post that literally had the whole of the ACC drop their collective jaws. It probably would have gone down in history expect that Bosh couldn't finish through the contact. F.U. Bosh.

I'm not sure Claud. It may of looked like showboating at first, but throwing the ball 40 feet up in the air completely shattered the brains of the Minnesota defenders, freezing them in their spots.

I expect to see nothing less than 1 or 2 more passes like that a game. This pass might be the biggest thing to happen to basketball since the slam dunk.

I can't believe fans in Miami like that stupid magic show LBJ puts on before the game... it wasn't cool in Cleveland either

agreed..... that was incredible.

of course, part of the amazingness of it had to do with a sense that we had a special player on our hands.... and that we were going to see many more such moments of greatness in the years to come.

now, flash-forward to today..... and there hasn't been anything since that pass to get overly excited about.

Bargs was a no look between the legs bounce pass to Bosh.

Magic was the master.

Sabonis was amazing. Too bad NBA never got to see him in his physical prime.

Yea very unfortunate. Here's a really grainy clip from 1986 where he was schooling David Robinson and the USA:
